Tribute to Late Madam Janet Omonzele Osuyi Nee Odiase. (1932-July 6th, 2019)

By Prince Kelly Udebhulu (Son).

My mother was “Home Personified”- It was in her to harbor all; regardless of who you were or where you came from, she was a mother to them all.

Though I grew up without a father who I lost at a tender age, I lacked nothing because my late mom showered me with love and taught me how to love and respect others. She also equipped me with the skills to plan for the future.

In remembrance of the demise of my late mother this day, I feel a huge vacuum of loss, deprived, vulnerable, and yet feel so strong as I draw strength from the Love and values that she exuded. My memories, thoughts, beliefs, and assumptions about life and loss are all mixed up in a unique sensibility like no other.

I remember daily how my late mom struggled to pay some of my school fees and how she raised money to buy foodstuff to be added to other foodstuff gathered from her farm as I prepared to go back to my school at Agbor in the present-day Delta State of Nigeria.

I remember how she struggled to give me a life that others with both parents have. She struggled to play the roles of both parents and doing all in her will to avail all my father would have provided. Special thanks goes also to my late elder brother; late Chief Friday Usifoh Osuyi, who complimented my late mom’s efforts.

I remember when one of my half brothers out of his good gesture offered to send me to his friend in PortHarcourt, but my late mother diplomatically declined. In her words that are still fresh in me to this day, said:

“I have no child to be used as a slave, under my care my son, Ogbemudia as his name connotes, will grow and be all that his Divine Destiny has willed.”

That voyage to PortHarcourt was cancelled.

Many may not know the source of my success in life today. It was my late mother who introduced to me, the importance of community service. According to her, it was one of the legacies my late father left behind. My mom thought about everything. Her resilience was unmatched. Despite many odds, she parented her children fearlessly and with endless love. She taught me so much about self-worth and helped me figure out who I wanted to be today.

I cherish this day as I remember my late mom under some circumstances, particularly, when I saw the pains of my late mother’s struggles just to make me happy. In the same spirit, I resolved to break all barriers to make it my obligation to succeed in life. I wanted to be the good father that I am today to my children. I promised that I would give them the foundation to build their lives and it would be my greatest gift I will give them like my mom gave to me.

Though my late mom was not any richer than anyone else, the difference was the level of investment she made in me; not only nurturing my dream but also nurturing my ability to dream and dare. And today, am a happy man because I had a mother that played the role of both parents. Thank you mom for your love and deep insight.

On the other side of the paradox is the reality that so many roads still lead back to her. Over time she has become a part of me, my children, and my family on a cellular level. Physically she may be gone, but spiritually, I feel her presence everywhere around me. While both truths can make me sad, the latter brings me immense comfort.

I am grateful that late Madam Janet Omonzele Osuyi Nee Odiase ‘was and is’ my mother.

Continue to Rest ln Peace Mama!
Amen!
